The Owl is making a comeback

Observation by the Owl – I’m back

Let’s start 2015 with a bang.

Here is some interesting subjects for 2015

Why hasn’t Unite Union’s Charitable Trust filed their accounts?

Why hasn’t The Maritime Union of NZ filed their accounts?

Will Andrew Little make sure these matters are actioned asap? 

Will the EPMU Training Foundation be closed down now that it is technically insolvent?

Will EPMU request their million dollar loan be repaid back to their members?

Will Andrew Little request the Registrar to deregister these incorporated societies and charities forthwith?

That is what any good leader in waiting would do?

Enjoy Xmas

    Wise Owl, you will probably know the answer….if a charity needs to do charitable stuff, such as relief of poverty, the advancement of education or religion, or any other matter beneficial to the community, what do you reckon a union’s charitable trust does to satisfy that requirement? I would genuinely love to know

      I think they use it to buy holiday homes for the ‘members’ however they are usually booked at for the holidays by Union staff. Funny that.

    • Time For Accountability

      Hmm so would I, especially the wefare funds of meat workers etc.

  • Whitey

    Very good questions. Unfortunately we all know what the answers are.

    Has Destiny filed their returns yet? It amazes me how organisations get away with this. If I am late filing I get letters every other day from IRD. When times are tough I admit I have delayed filing at times only because I’m delaying the ACC bill that arrives within days. In a summer seasonal business the penalties are less than the over-draught. But I would assume unions would not have similar ACC issues?

    • Time For Accountability

      Wll he ensure his chief of staff bring unites tax affairs up to date.

  • Time For Accountability

    Emu are also missing a part year if I remember correctly

  • timemagazine

    Yes,but little Andrew is not a good leader.

  • Goldfish

    Can the general public make complaints and/or request that these organisations be shut down for not filing the required returns? If so, how and who to?
